Nuisance: Mon 7/25: On the bus with California Bernie delegates, going to Wells Fargo Center for DNC proper. [Timestamped highlights]

This whole conversation is great.

Highlights from this video

0-7:30: Conversation between four delegates about fundraising, and the outrageous hotel costs imposed onto all Bernie delegates.

7-30-9:30: One delegate who also attended the 2012 convention comparison with 2016 so far.

11:30-14:40: “It’s never been about Bernie.”

Debating the difference between “we must get Hillary Clinton elected” and “you must vote for Hillary Clinton.” (Part one of two)

14:40: The future of the revolution

“I would rather see people just shrug that part off this off and be like, ‘Yeah, OK, Hillary Clinton is being nominated here,’ than to be spending all this opportunity, having thousands and thousands of these great progressive here, to talk about what comes next, building political power in our base, building power in our communities. And instead people are spending all this energy doing every time Hillary Clinton’s name is mentioned.”

18:05-20:45: Debating the difference between “we must get Hillary Clinton elected” and “you must vote for Hillary Clinton” (part two of two)

We agree to disagree

Paraphrasing comment from Hispanic delegate: “If you are not voting for ‘the Democratic nominee’ then you are voting from a position of privilege, as someone who will not suffer at the hands of Donald Trump’s racism and bigotry and misogyny.”

This person is not voting for “Hillary Clinton”. They are voting for “the Democratic nominee”.
